Make smart strategic decisions based on hard financial data

Gone are the times when board members could listen to the CFO, smile, and candidly state that finance was not their piece of cake.

In a fast-changing and increasingly competitive business environment, you are expected to have a solid grasp of finance so you can best challenge the management team on finance reports, and make strategic decisions based on hard finance data.

IMD’s Finance for Boards is designed to give you the essential finance knowledge you need to make tough decisions for your company in areas such as mergers & acquisitions as well as risk management.

Finance literacy

Master the main financial valuation methods and their meanings.

Reporting essentials

Be at ease reviewing and challenging financial reports presented to you.

Risk assessment
